We have a fantastic singer called Kevin Sekhani who delivers his debut CD entitled: “Day Ain’t Done”. However, this Austin based musician has already done a lot in the past, including being a member of the successful band “The Mercy Brothers”. However, he is now concentrating on his solo career and I must say that this does sound like one of the better true Americana Roots Rock and Roll records of 2015. Kevin has got a terrific voice in the classic tradition of John Cougar Mellencamp, the Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson and Silver Condor legend Joe Cerisano. While also musically tapping out of that style, fitting somewhere between those acts. The songs are melodic and very catchy, easy to sing-a-long and featuring those excellent vocals from Kevin. Although Americana and Roots Rock, along with heartland rock is combined with traditional instruments that make it sound a little folksy. There are clear early 1980’s Pop Rock/AOR influences to be heard that can be compared to Silver Condor. Highlights are “The Higher I Get”, “Walk Away From Me”, “Summer Street” and “Burial Ground”. This surprisingly great record is a gem not to be missed!
